Steve Rogers' Enlistment Attempts

"Where are you from, Mr. Rogers? Hmm? Is it New Haven? Or Paramus? Five exams in five different cities."
"That might not be the right file."
"No, it's not the exams I'm interested in. It's the five tries."
Abraham Erskine and Steve Rogers[src]

Steve Rogers, a young man of strong morals from New York City, tried to enlist for military duty in World War II, as he believed had no right to stay behind when men were risking their lives fighting in the war. Despite his motivation, Rogers was rejected due to various health and physical issues.

Rogers was not discouraged by this rejection, and he tried to enlist again for a grand total of five attempts. In order to have more chances, and despite being illegal, Rogers lied about his origin on the enlistment form, stating in one of his attempts that he was born in Paramus, New Jersey.

Although not approved in any of these attempts, he impressed Doctor Abraham Erskine, who allowed him to serve in the Strategic Scientific Reserve.[1]
